Deze camping is gelegen midden in natuurpark picos de Europa, je word omgeven door prachtige bergen. De camping is redelijk klein en heerlijk rustig, vooral bestaand uit gras met een aantal bomen waardoor je eigenlijk de hele dag wel ergens in de schaduw kan zitten. Bij aankomst wordt je te woord gestaan door vriendelijk personeel en mag je zelf je plekje uitzoeken. Het sanitair op de camping is prima in orde en word dagelijks schoongemaakt. Je kunt broodjes bestellen voor het ontbijt, er is een bar/restaurant en een winkeltje waar de broodnodige dingen te verkrijgen zijn want de supermarkt is niet in de buurt. Op de camping wordt dagelijks informatie gegeven over wat er allemaal te doen is in het natuurpark, erg handig!

Een eevoudige, goed onderhouden camping. Plaatsen zijn ruim en de camping is prachtig gelegen. Electriciteit op beperkt aantal plaatsen; neem een lang snoer mee. Wifi aanwezig. Prettig restaurant met streekgerechten waar ook brood te bestellen is. Een klein winkeltje waar het hoogst noodzakelijkeaanwezig is. Heel vriendelijk en prettig allemaal.
